Fiji is home to some of the most stunning beaches in the world. The postcard images of turquoise water lapping gently against palm tree-fringed, milky white beaches, are every bit as real as they appear in the photos.

Most of the beaches in Fiji aren’t what you’re used to in Australia, in that they’re not suitable for surfing. Protected by coral reefs, the waters tend to be quite calm and lagoon-like, which is perfect for splashing about, snorkelling and kayaking.

Narrowing down Fiji’s best beaches is an unenviable task, but let's have a go:

1. Mana Island 

Part of the Mamanucas chain of islands, Mana Island is blessed with beaches on all sides. We recommend the beach on Mana’s southern coast — it’s breathtaking and so expansive you’ll never have to worry about overcrowding.

2. Yasawa Island

Yasawa exemplifies the tropical island vibe. Being the northernmost in the Yasawa Islands chain, you’ll find both waves and calm waters. 

3. Malolo Island

The main beach here is a hive of activity. Unlike a lot of other beaches in Fiji, where the coral reefs are exposed for half the day due to receding tidal waters, Malolo Island’s main lagoon beach is relatively deep for the entire day. The large expanse of sand and deep lagoon makes it the perfect place for all kinds of water sports.

4. Natadola Beach

The best Fijian beaches tend to be on the smaller and less developed islands, but not always. Natadola Beach, on the Coral Coast of the main island Viti Levu, is an exception to the rule and is not too far from many resorts.

5. Vomo Island

Vomo Island’s beaches allow some of the best snorkelling opportunities in the South Pacific. They are generally fairly deserted and can be enjoyed throughout the day.

6. Tokoriki Island

The sunsets here are just stunning, and the coral reefs are ideal for kayaking, snorkelling and scuba diving.


Surfers will know of Fiji’s legendary breaks such as Swimming Pools, Restaurants and Cloudbreak.

Most of Fiji’s waves break onto a reef and are better for the more experienced surfer, but if you’re a novice have no fear as there are schools to teach you how to surf, and beach breaks built for beginners.

Mix it up on a variety of left- and right-handers and don’t expect long lines!

You can surf all year in Fiji, but it’s best from April to October, when consistent swells up to 10ft roll in.
